Great little splitter

,
February 22, 2013
By frank85
from Oklahoma
"My previous experience with a splitter was with a more powerful vertical version. I was really pleased with this particular splitter. I ordered on-sale and picked up at my local store. Assembly instructions are not the best but I probably did not read them as thoroughly as I should have.
Operation has been a treat. Motor starts easily and runs well. It is surprisingly quiet. My logs are aged and split readily. I did not have any that the splitter failed. The gas tank has been critiqued for being too small, but I need a break that often anyway.
Overall I have been very pleased and would recommend this machine."

Not worth it

"Bought this splitter to split cords of wood and in 2 hrs this machine was broken. Northern's shop said it was either a broken pump or control valve. Customer service was excellent and a refund was issued but this splitter is not worth trying."

Best Little Splitter

,
November 8, 2012
By Logger123
from SLC, UT
"Recently had a chance to use this compact splitter and was surprised how fast and easy it was to use. I have in the past used much larger log splitters, but I found this unit had a ton of power and was able to split my most difficult logs without any problems. This is a great compact log splitter."

Wel-Bilt Compact Horizontal Log Splitter - 12-Ton,

,
June 4, 2012
By Napoleon1957
from Mastic, NY
"Received the log splitter today, packed well, easy assembly, quick start after filling all fluids (hydraulic oil not included, but as expected). Split a pile of wood in the first 1/2 hour, some knarly old stuff, and some locust wood (real tough stuff). No problems at all, hopefully this little machine will go the distance.
Compact, easy to store.
Only complaint is that the assembly instructions were buried closer to the end of rather than the beginning of the overly comprehensive manual."
